Hi all, our hearing is especially important to us, so, I wanted you to know about some important information which may help you prevent hearing loss: * several studies have linked the daily use of Tylenol with hearing loss. other pain relieving medicines are also implicated, but none as strongly as Tylenol, especially in men. * many more studies have linked smoking with hearing loss. This isn't just a coloration, many doctors believe the cause and effect relationship is proven. * and of course, constantly being exposed to loud noises is known to cause hearing loss There is a quiz you can take, and the score may indicate to you if you have sufficient hearing loss to send you to the doctor: http://www.aolhealth.com/conditions/hearing-self-test hth, Chip Check out the TABI resource web page at http://acorange.home.comcast.net/TABI and please make suggestions for new material. if you'd like to unsubscribe you can do so through the freelists.org web interface, or by sending an email to the address tabi-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with the word "unsubscribe" in the subject.
